    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    Tried to remove the soleniod but I haven't got a spanner thin enough or the correct size [26mm] to fit between the casing & solly body, so it'll have to wait.

    Rear light loom

    Loom from engine bay to rear still goes through chassis, then out of right main rail inner face up into right rear corner, then across back of fuel tank to left side then up into left rear corner, it cannot go through the rear crossmember as it would get snagged by the towing bracket bolts.

    Dash centre console panel pre Td5

    Managed to get my new CB fitted to the dash, had to fit it below the stereounit & the control head couldn't fit on the slopped area as it would interfere with the stereo's screen, & it has a 9 pin D sub connection on the rear so that stopped trying to fit it in the upper area.
  12. Would like to request photo's of your dash centre switch/radio panels, if any of you have one of these I need to decide on a interior mod of my dash to safely & securely accommodate my new cd/radio unit https://forums.lr4x4.com/topic/104622-flip-up-screen-stereocd/ Can't decide on the Mudstuff panel -- https://www.mudstuff.co.uk/products/mud-stuff/mud-defender-console.html or the Bolt on bits RDX panel -- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RDX-Command-Console-Original-Best-Easy-Fit-Tdi-Td5/231476808374?hash=item35e517cab6:g:8SQAAOSw04ZcbXRH

    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    Slipping in when disengaged giving me no drive & occasionally wouldn't transmit drive when engaging, it worked OK on the drive up to wiltshire a week or so ago

    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    Piston & O ring are fine as is the relief valve parts. IIRC the 4 long springs move the brake cone from engaged to disengage position Haven't opened the unit up yet, been busy doing garden clearing work here at home

    200tdi temperature sender

    300tdi has a 2nd temp sender on the top of cylinder head for the EGR system, 200 in both Defender & Discovery have the gauge temp sender in thermostat housing.

    200tdi temperature sender

    Defender spec 200tdi needs temp sender PRC8593 which has a 5/8 unf thread --- https://www.lrdirect.com/PRC8593-Temp.-Transmitter-200Tdi-Black/ Discover & RRC spec 200tdi use the smaller finer thread variant on lrparts.ru it shows 3 variants see photo below

    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    300tdi’s heating

    Fit the correct 88 degree thermostat & check for leaks, maybe a small leak at the heater matrix, also check the gauge is working OK & the gauge U clamp is not touching the gauge terminals as it can short the gauge to earth & give a false reading

    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    Filter, relief valve & piston accessed, & some gunk removed from filter element, piston, springs look OK, Inside of OD looks clean too.

    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    No problem with the parts you changed, as they old ones are in the box, going to look at the filter first, hopefully my angle grinder adjustable key will get the filter base off.

    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    No worries, going to remove the big filter tomorrow if I can get the cap off & give it a good clean, actually looking inside from the bottom plate it looks quite clean, didn't have any big bits fall out when the bottom plate was removed.

    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    All removed now & on bench, original gear refitted & all good for going to work tomorrow. Will pull the OD filter either tomorrow evening or at the weekend.
